Whose sins you forgive are forgiven them, and whose sins you retain are retained. John 20:23

First Reconciliation

Students can prepare to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation at home, or by attending a class.  To attend in person, please complete the online registration form and paper forms.    The class meets on the 2nd Sundays of the month, September through April from 9:45am until 10:45am.  This is the same time as the Family of Faith Parent Class and the Family of Faith Children’s Class.   The class uses some of the lessons of the Our Lady of the Rosary Curriculum (found below) to meet the Archdiocesan objectives for preparing for the sacrament.   Also below, is a link to the notebook which outlines which lessons to study.

A First Reconciliation retreat will be held for families in the spring along with interviews with our priest where students and their families can demonstrate that they are ready to receive this sacrament.   Once a student passes their interview, they can receive the sacrament at any confession time at any Catholic parish.

Resources to help you prepare for the sacrament include:

  1. First Reconciliation Notebook
  2. Our Lady of the Rosary Family Catechism   
  3. Our Lady of the Rosary Information Packet 
  4. First Reconciliation Notebook – currently under revision please check back in late August 2021
